Ftarri / Ftarri Festival 2019

Magnus Granberg

This is Magnus Granberg's first visit to Japan.

Magnus Granberg is a composer and performer living in Stockholm, Sweden. Born in Umeň in 1974, he studied saxophone and improvisation at the University of Gothenburg and in New York in his late teens and early twenties. Self-taught as a composer, he formed his own ensemble Skogen in 2005 trying to integrate experiences, methods and materials from various traditions of improvised and composed musics into a new modus operandi. Apart from the ongoing work with Skogen he is increasingly writing music on commission for different ensembles and projects. Recent work includes pieces for the ensembles Ordinary Affects, Ensemble Grizzana and Insub Meta Orchestra which have been performed at festivals and venues in Europe and the USA. Granberg's work has mainly been published by the British record label Another Timbre with occasional releases on record labels such as Ftarri and Insub.
